the church in Bloomfield

We hold faith common to all believers: Titus 1:4; Jude 3;​

We hold the Bible as the complete divine revelation inspired by the Holy Spirit (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21; Col 1:25);
God is eternally one (Psalms 90:2; 1 Tim 2:5; Isaiah 43:10; 1 Cor 8:6), and also eternally the Father, the Son, and the Spirit, the three being distinct but not separate (Isaiah 9:6, Hebrew 7:3, Hebrew 1:8~11, Hebrew 9:14, John 4:24, 1Cor15:45, Matt 28:19);  Christ is both the complete God and the perfect man (John 1:1,1:14, John 14:11, Col 2:9, Romans 9:5, Romans 1:3~4, 1 Tim 2:5); Without abandoning His divinity, He was conceived in the womb of a human virgin (Luke 1:31-35, Matt 1:23), lived a genuine human life on earth(Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), and died a vicarious and all-inclusive death on the cross (Luke 23, Matt 27:50, John 1:29, John 12:24, Roman 8:3, Hebrew 2:14, Hebrew 9:15, Col 1:20, Gal 6:14);  After three days He resurrected bodily(Luke 9:22, 24:39, 24:46 John 20:27), and has ascended to the heavens (Luke 24:51, Acts 1:9-10); He is now in glory, fully God but still fully man(Col 2:9, Acts 7:55~56); We look to His imminent return (Rev 22:7,12,20) with the kingdom of God, by which He will reign over the earth in the millennium and in eternity (Isaiah 9:7, Luke 1:32-33, Rev 20:4,6, Rev 11:15, Psalm 145:13, Daniel 4:3); We confess that the third of the Trinity, the Spirit, is equally God (John 4:24, Acts 10:38, Matt 28:19); All that the Father has and is, is embodied and expressed in the Son (John 3:35, John 17:9-10, John 1:14,18, John 14:9-10, John 16:15), and all that the Son has and is, is realized as the Spirit. (John 16:13-14, 1 Cor 15:45, 2 Cor 3:17); We further believe that mankind is in need of God's salvation. Though we were absolutely unable to fulfill the heavy demands of God's righteousness, holiness, and glory (Romans 3:20,23, 5:17a, 19a, 21a,7:12,15,18,23-24, Acts 4:12), Christ fulfilled all the requirements through His death on the cross (Romans 3:24-25, Col 1:22, Heb 13:12, Heb 10:10); Because of Christ's death, God has forgiven us of our sins, justified us by making Christ our righteousness and reconciled us to Himself ( Eph1:7, 1 John 2:12, Jer 31:34, Heb 10:18, Romans 5:19,21, 1 Cor 1:30, Col 1:22, Romans 5:10);  Based on Christ's redemption, God regenerates the redeemed with His Spirit to consummate His salvation, that they may become His children (John 1:12-13, John 4:24, John 3:5-8, 1 John 3:2, 1 Pet 1:3,23); Now possessing God's life and nature (1John5:11,13, 2 Pet 1:4), the believers enjoy a daily salvation in His Body in this age and the eternal salvation in the coming age and in eternity (Romans 5:10, 1 Cor 12:12,13, Romans 12:4,5, Eph 4:4,12,  Heb 5:9) ; In eternity we will dwell with God in the New Jerusalem, the consummation of God's salvation of His elect. Amen. (Psalms 90:1, Eph 2:21-22, 2 Cor 5:1, Rev 21:3)
